Re: [FH] Update Oreo bloodwork & inappetence issue
- Great news! I'll bet that both of you are thrilled that you did this, and that the ordeal is almost all over.....
I always mix hot water in with the canned food, they love the "soup"

Subject: [FH] Update Oreo bloodwork & inappetence issue
Got his bloodwork back today. All has remained stabile. his HCT dropped a bit from 30 to 27 ( which he has been anemic for months now & on B daily), which she said could have been from the surgery. We will keep on the B daily and recheck in a couple weeks.
gave the Mirtazapine yesterday & he has been gourging his food, what a change. I even just took a can of "Pate' " food and added warm water and smashed it up a bit and he ate all of that, which is a far cry from the blending of his food.
So, the initial consensus is that maybe that stitch that didn't dissolve was causing his discomfort while he ate & or he just needed a dose of the Mirtazapine to get him re-started. Either way, it doesn't look like a nausea issue, creatinine has remained stabile at 3.5 & bun at 41 since February and that was what I was worried about, the dental causing kidney distress. His phosphorous was 4.5, well within range. All other numbers were in range. Urinalysis showed only that consistent to a CRF cat, nothing more. So, all in all, a good report. I can breath a sigh of relief and keep trudging on with my little boy.
I can't thank you all enough for your advice and direction as well as reminding me that I was doing the right thing. I will keep you posted as to his continuous recovery.
